    1. During the 1990’s the United States saw an unprecedented decrease in crime. Nationwide there was an approximately 40% decrease in all seven of the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) categories. Police departments across the nation have taken credit for the decreasing crime in their jurisdictions and scholars of various disciplines have tried to find their own answers for the decline. In The Great American Crime Decline, Professor Franklin E. Zimring, of the University of California, Berkley [...]


    2. Interesting, thought-provoking look at U.S. crime in the 1990s does a good job of exploring many different possible explanations for a phenomenon that no one really has the complete explanation for.


    3. Good book that demands modesty from those seeking to explain why crime fell in the 1990s and stayed down. There is so much we don't know. Multiple factors working at once and impossible to isolate or test.


    4. Horribly boring book, but a must read for any criminal justice major. Zimring does a thorough job of exploring the causes of the crime decline. Yet in the end, it is all too clear that there cannot be one solid explanation.
